To receive full credit for the discussion, you must enter a minimum of three quality posts (your own initial post, and responses to two classmates). Also, be sure to cite at least one source in your initial post.
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) classifies discrimination by type with the following list: age, disability, equal pay/compensation, genetic information, harassment, national origin, pregnancy, race/color, religion, retaliation, sex, and sexual harassment. Recently, the United States Supreme Court announced that it was accepting three cases for its 2019-2020 session to determine whether sexual orientation and transgender should be explicitly included. States often have additional categories, for example, adding sexual orientation or political views.
For this Module 3 discussion, for your initial post, do some internet research and find a wrongful termination or other employment case that alleges discrimination based on one of the EEOC types of discrimination or an additional state type. Tell us about the case and look at it from the employer’s point-of-view. What should the employer have done differently? Or did the employer act appropriately and is the discrimination claim lacking in merit? In your replies to initial posts from your classmates, take a constructive approach and let’s see what we can learn from and suggest about these cases to work towards reducing discrimination in the workplace.
